Technical operations rely on a complex, collaborative global language to design, analyse and improve the production of goods and services.
Ishikawa. Heijunka. Kazien. Poka-yoke. Pareto. Technical operations rely on a complex, collaborative global language to design, analyse and improve the production of goods and services. Meanwhile, the rapid development of artificial intelligence and machine learning is ushering in a new era of transformation that will bring about game-changing approaches, models, processes and systems in technical operations management.
One of the over-riding factors in the failure of a business is poor technical operations management - on average, more than 20,000 German businesses file for insolvency each year. Without proper technical operations management, it’s safe to say that a company will struggle to achieve its goals and deadlines. A technical operations manager must anticipate the needs of the company according to the scalability of the business. Essentially, it’s about balancing technical and managerial knowledge, the technical operations manager should be prepared to advise on potential improvements and anticipate future needs.
A study by McKinsey Analytics titled ‘Analytics Comes of Age’, suggests that supply chain management (including distribution), workplace management and operations are where advanced analytics including ‘big data’ are making the greatest contributions to revenue growth today. 83% of technical operations managers surveyed in these fields said that proper utilisation of ‘big data’ would have a positive effect on their business.
The start-up sector is an area where technical operations professionals will thrive in the coming years. There are over 6,000 start-ups currently operating in Germany, and that number will continue to grow - 90% of these start-ups will fail, largely due to the issues faced when scaling up.
